Lively bright red. Lovely aromas and flavors of red cherry and sweet spices, plus pretty violet lift. Juicy and focused in the mouth, with a fresh mouthfeel and smooth tannins. Closes long and bright. Not very complex, but easy to drink and very enjoyable.

The Castello Banfi 2018 Rosso di Montalcino is a stripped-down and easy-drinking red that would pair with a chicken and cheese quesadilla topped with extra sour cream and guacamole. The wine has the fresh acidity to cut through the fat in those foods without overpowering the fragrant spices and cilantro. This Rosso ages in both botte and barrique for one year.

Wild berry, violet and menthol aromas are front and center on this bright young red. It's easygoing and approachable, offering juicy Marasca cherry and a hint of baking spice alongside soft tannins and vibrant acidity. Drink through 2021.
